I'm finally reviewing this 1 month after seeing it. The more I think about it, the better it gets. As far as technical stuff goes-its great. A great example is that we never see the sun in the shot until we go into the Park's house for the first time. The film is beautifully shot-good uses of spacial depth, framing, and light. The movie's story is perfectly pieced together with Chekov's guns put everywhere. Then the plot-twist hits. The entire story turns on its head-but it feels natural.
The film reflects on class. The use of "Parasite" as the title. At the start-you assume the parasite is the poor family. Leeching off of the parks. What I feel that the movie is saying is that the Parks are the Parasites. Leeching off the poor people who work all day and all-night 9-5 to bring the Parks into a richer family. Movies this last year seem to be focusing a lot on class. With this last year being filled with people like Mark Zuckerburg and Elon Musk-the billionaire status is becoming more and more attainable. This is a perfect movie
